Excursion Itinerary: Full-day Tour To Aegina From Athens

Early in the morning, we will pick you up from your accommodation and escort you to Piraeus Port. Your assistant will give you the necessary information about the excursion and answer any questions you may have. Once at the port, you will embark on the Fast Ferry that will take you directly to the port of Egina.
Chora literally meaning "capital" is the name given to the main village, where the majority of the population of the island is concentrated, in order to differentiate it from the rest of the island.
This town with a history of 5,500 years, its twisted alleys and major streets dotted with neoclassical mansions, is arranged in the form of an amphitheater facing the sea. In the port, the church of Agios Nikolaos, protector of the sailors, is situated.
Close to the town, on a nearby hill, is located the ancient city of Colona in which there are vestiges of a temple dedicated to Apollo (there is a column standing) as well as some foundations of the Mycenaean period. Not far from Chora, we can also find the Church of Saint Theodor with frescoes dating back to the XIII century. In the center of the island, the monastery of Saint Nectarius can be found, built by the saint himself when he retired to the monastic life. He is buried in this same place, and years later he was canonized.  Ceremonies in his honor take place every year on November 9th. This monastery is following the architectural model of Saint Sophia of Constantinople.
Perhaps the most characteristic monument of Aegina is the Temple of Afea dating from the 5th century BC. It is a great example of the Doric style although it has two levels. It was built in commemoration of the battle of Salamis and is located 11 km. east of Chora. Example of the medieval era can be seen in the town of Paleochora, where the populations attacked by the pirates of the Mediterranean have left their traces. Some constructions of the XIII century are still conserved for the contemporary visitor.
A nice excursion would be to the spa of Santa Marina, about 3.5 km to the northeast of the island, built next to a 500 m beautiful beach bordered by pines.
At the agreed time, you will make your way to the port where you will catch the Fast Ferry back to the port of Piraeus.  End of your day tour.
